Musical Theater - a new original project needs male and female singers for demos
Hi - we're looking for singers with traditional musical theatre experience and inclinations for the following roles for a true historical story set in mid-19th century California :
Women: 4 roles
1. 35ish - Mexican/Californio - the strong wife and partner of our General.
2. 16-18ish - an independent and ambitious young woman and niece of the above.
3. 18-20ish - close friend of the above
4. 24-26ish - Well-connected and s...mart American wife of an ambitious and soon to be famous US Army Captain.
Please send your own voice samples and any pertinent resume details you wish to offer. Auditioners chosen will receive an mp3 piano track and lead sheets, and asked to record a 15-20 second sample of one of our songs before final selection.
Although we have an eye out now for performers and casting this show for either online or onstage production - depending on life in the Covid world in the next 6 months to a year! - our ultimate product at this stage is a 10-15 minute video/trailer of the show to be used for promotion/fundraising etc. As it's a short demo, we may only ask you to record vocals on part of each song, but would ask you to learn the whole song, some of which are duets/multi-character etc, as you'd expect in musical theater!
Thank you much for your time and energy in helping us bring this work to life!
